Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad would probably be the first rail line in the country to have a high-speed corridor, from the six being planned. The estimated construction cost is Rs 100 crore a km.
Tendering for creation of infrastructure for the corridor is expected to begin in 2014. French consultancy Systra recently gave a pre-feasibility report on the project to Indian Railways (IR). The latter are considering financial options for the entire project.
